Format: Mass Market Paperback
This one is my favorite in the series... Sebastian/Kaderin have a romance that's just comfortable. They don't fight each other too much, there isn't any constant bickering, they don't annoy each other. I know, I know, if there isn't any tension, then where's the excitement in their relationship? The fun & excitement comes from the situation the two characters are in. Kaderin is a constestant in a brutal contest similar to "the amazing race" where each task is extremely dangerous, not only from the task itself, but from the other competitors determined to do anything to knock you out of the contest. Sebastian enters the contest just to keep Kaderin safe.

I think 95% of the romance books I've read have the usual plot where guy meets girl, girl hates guy, followed by 100 pages of arguing while denying the lust until, wham, on page 200 the characters have sex and their relationship is suddenly okay. I give them 5 years before the passion is gone and they are looking for a divorce.

I loved "No rest for the wicked" because right from the beginning I can feel that these characters are meant to be together. It's like seeing two halves find each other and they become whole. I think I love this book becasue I can see the two characters actually being together FOREVER. If immorals grew old, these two would be the type where you see them 70 years from now sitting on their front porch still holding hands.

This is the only book I have ever read twice.

You don't need to read the series to pick up this book. But if you do, there are references to a previous book "Playing hard to get", and the next book "Wicked Deeds on a winter's night" (another good book in the series)

This book was a pretty good read, I bought it because I had 'A hunger like no other'. I felt the book was a little disapointing compared to the first book I bought in the series, but still a very good read. Also, if you are not wanting to get the first book, this one stands quite well on it's own. I would definitly buy future books of this line.

This book was a wonderful read. I really enjoyed the writing style as it doesn't fit in the typical romance novel clique. The flesh play is really intreguing and I can't wait for another Kresley COLE book. I ranked this one at a 5 because I am keeping it to re read and save as a great novel. I highly recommend her series and they have all been awesome. All I can say is Fabulous... yet again.

An Amazing Story From Start To Finish!!! Nov. 6 2006
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kaderin the Cold Hearted as a Valkyrie who is haunted by the loss of her two sisters and the reason behind their deaths. She now makes it a policy not to hesitate and to do what she must when faced with evil. So why when she is sent to kill a vampire does she not follow through? The answer is clear. Fate has plans for these natural enemies and it's going to make her life miserable. Sebastian is a Vampire that makes her feel emotions for the first time since the deaths of her sister. But this vampire is not just any vamp...he claims that Kaderin is his bride and he will stop at nothing to make sure she eventually realizes it. This couldn't come at a worse time since Kaderin has a contest that she participates in every year and this year the grand prize is something she can't walk away from. Her future happiness is at in the balance.

Sebastian Wroth was turned hundreds of years ago by his brother...a brother that he has never forgiven. He awaits death eagerly...or at least he did until Kaderin arrived. How could this pint size bundle of anger and beauty be his bride? It doesn't matter...all that matters is making her admit to the truth that they belong together. She won't come willingly and there are a great many things he doesn't understand about's a good thing he's patient and determined to not let his future get away from him. Now...if fate will be so kind as to cooperate.

I must admit I love Ms. Cole's writing. No matter the genre historical or paranormal she demonstrates her creative side with the stunning stories she manages to tell. Needless to say "No Rest for the Wicked" is no different. For readers that are looking for something new in the Paranormal/Fantasy genre...look no further. Ms. Cole delivers on all counts. This story never lags and our main characters combined with the numerous secondary characters are highly entertaining. Sebastian and Kaderin are a dynamic pairing and the chemistry that burns between them is unbelievable. What is even better...Ms. Cole never lets that tension weaken. In other words this is a romance that will enthrall, entertain and convince readers Ms. Cole is her for the long run. I am one pleased to realize this.

Even better than the first one Nov. 3 2006
By Elaine C McTyer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This installment of the Immortals after Dark series is excellent. I love this new world and the use of all the mythological creatures. I am looking forward to the next one.

Sebastion Wroth is the brother of Nikolai from A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER. Nikolai forced Sebastion to drink his blood and become a vampire. Sebastion has spent the last several hundred years hating his brother and wishing he were dead. He has no hope until he meets Kaderin the Cold-Hearted, a Valkyrie who is lost in guilt over the death of her two sisters a thousand yrs ago.

Kaderin showed mercy to a vampire who repaid her by killing her sisters. She mysteriously received the blessing of no emotions, that has allowed her to live with the guilt. But when she meets Sebastion all her emotions come back. She has entered the Hie, a scavenger hunt, to win the key of Thane. A key to time, if she wins she can go back and save her sisters.

The minute Sebastion sees Kaderin he knows she is his Bride. The one woman who can make his heart beat again. Although she quickly leaves him he is determined to find her and once he does he must win her. Decideing to help her win the Hie, he enters the race against her wishes.

The tasks are all over the world and all are hard. Each one earns points, the most points wins. Sebastion wants only to help and protect Kaderin. This is a wonderful mixture of fun and romance, with a great ending.

There will be another book and I am so ready for it. The teaser at the end sounds marvelous.

Don't miss this one, if you like romance and fantasy.

I wish the wicked WOULD rest! Aug. 29 2009
By krissy - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is about a 3 1/2 star book. I'm disappointed because I loved the first one and had high hopes for this one. It started out great. Intense, lots of chemistry, the brooding, tortured, and ultra-sexy hero, etc. But somewhere along the way KC lost it! For me, the reason for this lay in her heroine. I couldn't like her! I really wanted to, but after pages and pages of over-the-top mean and cruel behavior, not to mention utter selfishness, I just couldn't get behind her at all! I kept expecting redemption at some point and I never really got it. Sebastion, on the other hand, was nothing but selfless. But the fact that he just kept taking her abuse and going back for more detracted from his over-all studliness. Frankly, he started seeming a little pathetic. There was a point where he got fed-up and he was going to try to be the only vampire to forsake his bride. I found myself cheering him on! I was so hoping he would get ruthless and cold and give her a taste of her own medicine and that would be the changing moment for her, but no. That went absolutely nowhere! So, like some of the other reviewers, I found the middle of the book very repetitive. I was easily able to put it down for extended periods of time. The end did pick-up and get exciting again, however, it was a bit rushed and easy. I've come to the conclusion that it's not the vampires that I don't like. It's the Valkyries! I really didn't care for them as secondary characters in Emmaline's story either. I liked Emmaline a lot! Being half vampire was an intriguing twist and she was very different from her aunts. But I'm just not impressed with the rest of the species in general. They seem to be generally unsupportive of each other. I expected Kaderin to have an ally in Myst, but even she advised against bringing a vampire to the coven. (It was okay for her, I guess, but nobody else!) Hadn't they already accepted Nikolai? (Albeit grudgingly.) I just wasn't buying that conflict. No, generally speaking, I find the Valkyries annoying. I know they are supposed to be funny with all their various quirks , but it just doesn't play that way for me. I feel like, if they truly love their sister, they'd be glad that she's found some happiness after 1000+ years of not feeling rather than giving her grief! Oh well! I'm just going to resign myself to the fact that the Valkyrie books probably won't be my favorites. There are other series out there like that too. In the mean time, I'm going to go on to the next. I love the Lykae, and Bowen in particular! And neither hero nor heroine is a Valkyrie. It could be a beautiful thing!

No Rest for the Wicked-Joyfully Recommended !!!!! Oct. 25 2006
By MNix - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Sebastian Wroth had been turned into a vampire against his will, so when Kaderin the Cold Hearted appears to kill him, he's surprised to care! For the time in hundreds of years he feels alive. Kaderin has been without feeling since the death of her two sisters long ago, but now she's been given a chance to go back in time and save them. In order to do so, she has to win a contest, a contest she has won many times in the past, but now the stakes are so much higher and she has no intention of letting Sebastian get in the way. But, Sebastian is determined to keep up with Kaderin every step of the way and to use every situation he can to seduce her!

When I finished this book I sat in a moment of stunned silence...before I went back to read it again! Without question No Rest for The Wicked proves that Kresley Cole's, The Immortals After Dark Series, has what it takes to keep me eagerly panting for more. Intensely sensual, with every fantasy creature imaginable and loaded with action that never stops, No Rest For The Wicked is a paranormal romance lover's dream! I will be impatiently pacing in anticipation of Bowden's story!

No Rest for the Reader! Jan. 8 2007
By Summeroz - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want to fall asleep then don't start this book. You will end up reading it from start to finish!

What it is about:

Sebastian Wroth was turned into a vampire against his will and sees little reason to live until he meets Kaderin the Cold Hearted. Kaderin lost her two beloved sisters to a vampire attack long ago, a benevolent force deadened her sorrow -- accidentally extinguishing all of her emotions. Yet whenever she encounters Sebastian, her feelings -- particularly lust -- emerge multiplied. Sebastian tries to win Kaderin as his bride and they both enter the Hie Contest (a sort of supernatural Olympics) to win a prize which allows them to go back in time.

What is good about it:

As in most romance novels one character is usually resisting falling in love and the other character is pursuing them. The same can be said in this novel. Kaderin does not want to be in love with Sebastian. However her denials of love aren't trite or fake or annoying. She is a truly a well round character. So is Sebastian he really wants Kaderin to love him and he isn't above bribing her for her affection. With the addition of the Hie Contest there is really no lag in the plot and it moves fairly seamlessly.

What is bad about it:

This is just me being nitpicking but I hated it when Sebastian calls Kaderin his "bride" all the time. And the who going back in time and no paradoxes or issues with it being too pat.


A great paranormal romance! Worth the read!
